image I had the privilege to meet Ed Yourdon during a training in Italy some years ago. And I follow his site / blog and his great career on Twitter.

On Twitter I read about his traveling all over the places (recently India and Russia).

I’ve almost never read in his posts a complain like this:

Internet access outrageously expensive in hotels here [in Rome]. File-upload basically blocked in guest rooms. Bah.

He is probably in a very good hotel in Rome and I don’t want to generalize (that’s NOT the situation everywhere in Italy) BUT I’m sad that Italy enforce his ‘good tradition’ of being ‘behind’ from a tech point of view.
